Celebrating Day 3 of Small Business Week with Animal Manners

Today, May 1st, marks day three of National Small Business Week 2018. It's time to celebrate entrepreneurship, local businesses, and being the little fish in a big pond!

So, what does being a small business mean to you personally?

For me, it means having the privilege of working with amazing people and being a part of being a part of a community I love. Every day, I get to collaborate with other small business owners who are passionate, hard-working, and love what they do. I couldn't ask for anything better!

When I started ThreeFox Marketing eleven years ago, I never would have imagined I would have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing local entrepreneurs, and get to be a part of helping them grow their businesses. This last year in particular has been incredibly amazing as I began to reach out to small businesses within my hometown community of West Sacramento.

Over the next few days, I'll be featuring a few of my amazing clients who are doing great things with their small businesses right here in the West Sacramento area. I encourage you to check them out, and show them some love (this week especially), in support of your community and Small Business Week!

I met Kris Kates on the social media app, Nextdoor. Originally interested in dog training for my pups, Kris and I quickly connected once I realized she needed some assistance with her website after being left high and dry by an unreliable web designer.

I was highly impressed with the business Kris had created as well as her 30+ years of training experience. We jumped in to quick action to get her website up and running and looking fabulous in less than two days.

After her website was secure, we worked on improving Animal Manner's SEO by updating Yelp, Google Maps, and Facebook, as well as getting her website domain transitioned from a .info address to a .com address to increase web traffic and brand recognition.

Animal Manners continues to grow in their name recognition, reputation, and client base. Kris is as busy as ever, so if you're looking for an amazing and professional dog trainer, or doggie day care services, be sure to contact her right away!
